1 Tom Shardware, with typos across multiple articles on someone else's typo.  I would expect no less.

The subhead is "This is why spellcheckers are nice." and now I'm left wondering what kind of person* has "Evengenlion", "Evangelion", and apparently "Evengelion" all in their spellchecker (obviously so they don't make a mistake when pointing out someone else's mistake).  Or did they just not proofread?

*Apologies to any actual person for the comparison to a tech journo.
